Jeremy's Christmas Journey Tour: Book Review + Giveaway!

About the Book

Author: Scott A. Johnson
Release Date: October 2012
Publisher: Cedar Fort (Facebook | Twitter)
Genre: Spiritual Holiday
For Jeremy, Christmas is just another reminder that he'll never be able to enjoy the things that come so easily to other children. Then one night he has a dream that will change everything. Accompanied by stirring music, this story of finding faith and discovering the power of the Master Healer is sure to be cherished at Christmastime and all year long.


What a beautiful reminder for the Christmas season! Jeremy's Christmas Journey is a short but sweet story about a young boy who is confined to a wheelchair. On Christmas Eve, Jeremy is struggling with emotions of self-pity and bitterness about his situation. He questions the reality of Christ and wonders why bad things happen to good people. As he falls asleep that night, Jeremy is blessed with a poignant dream that changes everything for him.

In this dream, the divinity and ministry of Jesus are on trial. Multiple witnesses are called to testify in his defense including His mother, Mary, His brother, James, and even one of the Roman soldiers involved in His Crucifixion. Each witness bears their testimony in the form of a song. These beautiful songs bring the testimonies to life and add so much to the overall powerful feeling of the book. (You can listen to the music here.)

It was touching to watch Jeremy's spiritual journey as his doubt slowly turned to faith. And it strengthened my own faith in reading and listening to such moving and compelling testimonies of those who actually knew and interacted with the Savior.

Jeremy's Christmas Journey is written in a simple form but made powerful by its stirring music and spiritual message. It is the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit and remind us of the true meaning of Christmas.
